Faraday Future will move along with this competitive bidding process after vetted discussion, and we look forward to starting the construction of our Phase 2 plant as soon as possible. Our Phase 2 construction includes an additional facility which will be built onsite to deliver our flagship vehicle, the FF 91, including the ultra-luxury limited Alliance Edition models, for our first group of users globally.

The production of the FF 91 is planned for 2018, and we will see if the company will stick with that schedule. The $180,000 priced electric car can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.39 seconds and comes with many interesting features like facial recognition technology, NASA-inspired zero gravity seats, and of course - the FF 91 can park itself.

 

The company also stated that they would invest $1B in the State of Nevada over the next few years which is where the facility is located.
